using power pro line

Question

markzeke

I started using power pro line last year when pulling bottom bouncers and crawlers. I really liked the line and was wondering if jig fishing do I need a mono leader or can I tie the jig directly to the power pro line.

Thanks

I like tying direct. However if I am in an area where I am getting lots of snags. I might run a small mono leader so I can break off easier when snagged. With power pro you will usually straighten the hook before breaking the line.

.....or destroy your reel. I did that to one of my spinning reels last year fishing in Canada (lots of snags).

I never thought of the mono leader (should have), but next time that's what I'll be doing. smirk.gif

I use Power Pro on all of my walleye rods for every presentation.

Lake Vermilion has slightly stained water so I have always just tied my jigs directly to the Power Pro.

I use a mono leader on my lindy type rigs most of the time but have also used lighter # test Power Pro with good results.

If you fish very clear water just tie a small swivel to your Power Pro then add a 2' to 3' mono leader.

I tie direct 90% of the time. If I tie on a mono leader for jigging I use a back to back uni knot. It goes through guides without a problem or having to worry about cracking a guide.

Only in clearer water do I use a mono leader. Big thing is dont get snags out with your rod/reel. It will brake themup. Either tie around a pliers or piece of something hard or point your rod right at the snag and grab your spool so it doesnt turn and pull straight back.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
